Failure to comply with BS 10175 (7.6.2.1) with regards to proposed school on former toxic waste dump

Sheila Oliver made this Freedom of Information request to Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Waiting for an internal review by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council of their handling of this request.

Dear Stockport Borough Council,

BS 10175 (7.6.2.1) states the more sensitive the receptors... the greater degree of confidence needed in the outcome of the risk assessment and the subsequent risk management. For a housing development at the former Jackson's Brickyard site at Adswood, Stockport, also opened in 1922, of similar size and with the same layout and history there were a total of 104 boreholes dug and 209 trial pits. Stockport Council/Greater Manchester Geological Unit in their proof of evidence at the public inquiry into the housing development in 2006 claimed this was not an adequate number, yet also in 2006 for the 550 pupil proposed primary school, only 4 trial pits and 11 boreholes were considered adequate. What evidence does Stockport Council have, as it claims, that it complied with BS 10175 (7.6.2.1) in the case of the proposed school?

Yours faithfully,

Sheila Oliver

Dear FOI Officer,

To reply to this request would incriminate the Council. This
wonderful website will be used in evidence in any subsequent
corporate manslaughter charges, presumably to be brought against
the Chief Executive, Director of Children and Young People's
Directate and the Executive Councillor, who have come to the
attention of the Coroner already regarding what is happening with
the unnecessary deaths of Stockport council taxpayers who have
dealings with the CYPD.

In addition, the town hall protester has been arrested yet again,
his wife said and I know her to be a truthful person, for trying to
obtain a council meeting agenda. This issue will now have to go
back to court and cost the taxpayer more thousands of pounds. I
believe the town hall protester tried to harm himself whilst in
this last custody. This is yet another Death in Progress at the
hands of Stockport Council.

Yours sincerely,

Sheila Oliver
